Testing Center

Testing services are available to all faculty members at Miami University through the Rinella Learning Center. Only students registered with Student Disability Services and who qualify for testing accommodations can take their exams through the RLC Testing Center.

Hours of Operation

The Testing Center of the Rinella Learning Center will be open according to the following schedule:

  • Monday       8:00am-7:00pm 
  • Tuesday      8:00am-7:00pm
  • Wednesday  8:00am-7:00pm
  • Thursday     8:00am-5:00pm

  • Saturday & Sunday  -  CLOSED  

Scheduling

Students can schedule an exam in the SAM (Students Accessing Miami system where their documents for SDS registration, semester faculty notification letters and alternative testing contract with faculty are processed) or by calling the RLC Testing Center at 513-529-8715. Before calling to schedule an exam, students should carefully read Student Policies for the Testing Center as they will be asked to provide specific information when scheduling. Faculty may refer to Faculty Policies for the Testing Center to better understand the policies and procedures they will be asked to follow when having their exam proctored through the RLC Testing Center.

Exam Submission

Exams must be received by 12 pm (noon) the day before the scheduled exam. If the exam is not received by this time, it may be necessary to reschedule the exam for a different day or time. The new guidelines for when exams must be received by the RLC Testing Center are intended to decrease the stress and anxiety of students who show up to take an exam at the testing center when the exam has not yet been received and to improve the student’s performance on the exam by reduced stress and anxiety. Additionally, to appropriately proctor the number and types of exams the RLC Testing Center administers each semester, the staff needs ample time to print the exam and to prep the testing space to meet ADA sanctioned accommodations and faculty special instructions.
